Hindi Medium shows Irrfan and Saba as a young couple struggling to get the perfect education for their daughter. Saket co-wrote Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Asoka (2001) and has also directed Pyaar Ke Side Effects(2006).

Irrfan plays a commoner who cannot speak English: “My life is Hindi but my wife is English.” The trailer showcases the struggles “Hindi medium” people face in today’s society where English is a yardstick for a person’s intelligence and coolness.

Deepak Dobriyal also stars in the film which is slated to hit theatres on May 12.
